Despite its age (having been released in 1977), RSA encryption is still one of the most widely used asymmetric encryption algorithms in use today. Interestingly, it seems that an equivalent algorithm to RSA was created at GCHQ by James Ellis, Clifford Cocks, and Malcolm Williamson four years previously in 1973. I learnt the theory behind RSA encryption…
